Now that the post Supreme x Nike Air More Uptempo colab hype has died down a little, we can once again appreciate the shoe on its own merit. Rarely is a sneaker more deserving of our reverence than Scottie Pippen’s 90s knockout. The lettering across the side, the chunky silhouette and those no-nonsense windows peering out from the midsole all add up to a snapshot of an era in which basketball shoes reigned supreme. Now the iconic Nike has been dusted with everyone’s favourite winter colourway, an all over ‘Wheat’ design. From the caramel-brown nubuck down to the matching gum sole, this one is an easy yes in our book.
The Nike Air More Uptempo ‘Wheat’ is set to release on October 14 via select Nike stockists.
